About the blog:

Jo is a mother, artist, home-school teacher, Thermomix recipe developer and consultant in Queensland Australia. Her specialty is using Thermomix to tweak and create allergy-friendly versions or everyday recipes, thereby making them healthier and more interesting.  (other specialties include ‘organizing’ and efficient multi-tasking!)  Bonus — Quirky Cooking Thermomix recipes are wheat free (sometimes gluten free), naturally sweetened, mostly dairy free recipes.

Jo says, “Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or difficult. Imagine. Experiment. Create. Have fun. Learn how to be a quirky cook!” And Jo’s Quirky Cooking blog is certainly all of the above. With imaginative, accomplished photography and a super busy facebook following to match, this woman is Australia’s healthy Thermomix powerhouse. (Note there is a also a new Quirky Cooking Cookbook due for release in May 2014!)

    Jo is a wonderful member of our forum especially for those who are cooking for family members with different allergies. She can always be relied on to come up with an answer or recipe to suit what these people are looking for. Not that her recipes are only for allergy diets, I have made several of her recipes and had to find my way around the health food shop searching for ingredients I had never used before. To have the time to do what she does absolutely amazes me – she is one special woman! Well done Jo.

    I thin Jo has lots of fans for her blog especially thermomix users. I love to look at it for inspiration when I’m in the kitchen wondering what to cook next.

    This to me has been the best blog on thermo cooking…so inspiring and motivates a mother of 3 to believe again in ones self… Go Jo…

  10. ThermomixBlogger Helene January 20, 2011 at 10:50 pm #

    Yup, I agree 100% — yay Jo!!!

  11. Quirky Jo January 23, 2011 at 2:57 am #

    Awww, thanks Debbie and Helene :) I’m so glad you’ve found it helpful, Debbie!

    Jo’s site is inspiring. The one downside I found when moving across to thermomix was the limited number of truly ‘healthy’ recipes without having to retweak substituting sugar, changing oils etc and recalculating quantities.
    All Jo’s recipes and tried and tested and work out exactly as presented, coming from a naturopathic background this is the way I want to feed my family and why I invested in a thermomix in the first place! Thanks Jo, for going to the effort of sharing your delicious recipes and keep them coming!

    I couldn’t agree more Zsuzsa — I’m particularly fond of Jo’s blog too. She is a wonder-woman, I don’t know how she manages it all, in such healthy ways too ;-)

    would be delighted in receiving your weekly emails.
    thank you

    Love checking out Jo’s blog. She is inspirational in how to eat healthily and enjoy food !

  16. ThermomixBlogger Helene January 26, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

    I SO agree with you Katherine! — Quirky Jo is my hero for healthier Thermomix recipes ;-)

  17. michelle September 10, 2013 at 1:16 am #

    Jo ,ive been reading alot of your news on receipts and there great.Im a vegan person and i have a thermomix.if a receipt says use milk,can i use rice milk instead,and will the receipt still taste the same with the rest of ingress..

  18. ThermomixBlogger Helene September 11, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

    Hi Michelle — Jo has a lot of great recipes using nut milk substitutes on her blog. I am not Jo, but I would suggest that in most cases there will be no noticeable difference in taste when using rice milk. (Hope this helps…)

    Hi Jo I am nine and I was inspired by you recipes to start to cook. My family has many allergies like gluten and artificial colours and flavours . I loved the gluten free pizza bases and the gingerbread biscuits they were superb thank you Jo !

  20. ThermomixBlogger Helene June 1, 2014 at 8:19 pm #

    Hi Izzy — it’s wonderful to hear how Jo has inspired you to cook allergy-free recipes. Bravo! Jo has inspired so many people to cook with more awareness and healthy. She might be too busy these days to read your comment here, (cuz she’s just launched a new cookbook!) so I encourage your to visit and leave a comment on the Quirky Cooking blog or facebook page.
